COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.
8.5% alc. 20 ibu. Serve at 8-12C

Holmen1 (5221) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2016
Flaske (batch 687, brygget 20.11.13) fra polets nettbutikk, hjemme: brunsvart med rd undertone. Svrt kort skum. Aroma og (deilig!) smak av sure kirsebr, rips og oe lett rdvinsaktig. Trr, snerpende vins avslutning. Slank for sitt vitamininnhold, s det byr ikke p problemer helle den vellystig over drvelen.

tomekboniek (578) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Butelka. Barwa ciemno brązowa. Brak piany. Aromat kwaśny, winny, dziki. W smaku duża kwaśność wiśniowo-porzeczkowa, praktycznie brak nut beczkowych. Dodatkowo w smaku można doszukać się wyraźnych nut winnych charakterystycznych dla czerwonego wytrawnego wina. Goryczka niska, rozgrzewająca przełyk. Zdecydowanie ciekawe piwo, szkoda, że baczka tak słabo zaznaczona.

svart med noen rd/lilla toner., nesten uten skum. Eik, eplekart, aske og lr i duften. Smaken er kompleks med flere lag av surhet. Eik fremtredende ogs i smaken. Noe bitterhet sammen med surheten. Lang ettersmak som ogs inneholder noe karamell. Trr avslutning. Hjdare!

Moebbels (760) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2015
A clear red body with no foam. Nose is sour with sweet bourbony oak notes. Taste is quite sour with a lingering puckering finish. Low carbonation and oily medium palate. The oak comes through nicely but I find that its a bit too sour for my taste.

Piana sycząca, znika od razu do zera. Barwa ciemno czerwono brązowa, lekko mętna. Aromat kwaśny, wiśniowy, winny z nutą starego drewna, dzikich drożdży i octu balsamicznego. W smaku wita nas spora kwaśność wiśniowo porzeczkowa, lekka cierpkość dębowej beczki, zaraz za nią czerwone płwytrawne wino, by na końcu przejść w czereśniowo migdałowy, słodkawy posmak. Goryczka niewielka, wyraźnie pestkowa z delikatnie alkoholowym, przyjemnie rozgrzewającym finiszem. Nagazowanie niskie do średniego, orzeźwiające, ale nie wodniste w odczuciu, "bogate w doznania". Bardzo fajnie ułożone piwo - kwaśność o profilu czerwonego wytrawnego wina z fajnie zaznaczoną beczką i dzikością.

Tap. One of best sours I tried lately. Very strong aroma, and sticky, medium bodied structure made it perfect for sipping for nearly an hour.
